Protect your Family and Home from Invading Mice and Rats

Protect your Family and Home from Invading Mice and Rats

Fall is upon us once again and with the cooler weather female mice and rats will be seeking warm places to rear their young. Your heated home or business is their most likely destination.
Mice and rats can transmit 35 diseases to humans including:
  • Salmonella Food Poisoning
  • Rickettsial pox
  • Meningitis Lymphocytic choriomeningitis
  • Leptospirosis (Weil’s Disease)
  • Rat-Bite Fever, Ray Fungus, and Ringworm
  • Dermatitis

Rodents are three dimensional. They can climb trees, pipes, walls and wires and gnaw their way through wood easily. A mouse can fit through a hole the size of a dime and a rat can squeeze through a quarter size hole.

Prevention is imperative, having a good Pest Control Program in place is one of the components but there are many things you can do to stop mice and from invading your home.

Homes overrun by trees and shrubs are susceptible to all type of pests. They provide a home and easy access for invading pests. Tree limbs need to be cut back nine (9) feet from the home. Shrubs need to be pruned back six (6) inches.

Properly installed Door Sweeps on all entrances including your garage stop pest and also will save you a few dollars on heating costs.

Cracks and holes around dryer vents and water spigots need to be sealed with cement. Dryer vents should have a flue that closes when not in use.

Windows should be caulked both inside and outside. Chimneys should be capped to prevent not only rodents but birds, squirrels and raccoons from entering the home.

Magic Exterminating can assist with these problems.

I've never heard anyone call rodents "three dimensional," but it's a perfect description. Those little buggers can get into everywhere and everything. It's a real nuisance! I call my pest control Orlando specialist whenever I see signs of them. Thanks for sharing this!
